Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta ALT A.. TUESDAY. Sj. OF CANADA Capitol, Rest and via Fwi 5 One rich; moat psople do. We don't think riches desirable. We should be sor- ry to have inherited wealth. a competence is vory desirable, is -in- dispensible. Well, the way .to get it is by forethought to plan, industry to execute, and prudence to keep the earnings of your work. Money is by no means the best thing in life. You are here in 'this world to become a good wise man, a. just man, an affectionate man, a religious man Work.for your manhood as much as for take as much pains to get and as much to keep it. Keep clear of vice. especially intemperance gambling and licentiousness. Thes three ruin thousands .of, young men every year. Be not gloomy, stiff. Cheerfulness, gaycty, livclines and mirtrmilness belong to your per iod of life. You will find little rea pleasure in anything that your con science forbids. As you have oppor- drawn to an extraordinary effusioa appcaftd in a- recent issue of a paper supposed to. bfe' a ;re-. port'. of the last" baseball "game be- tween; :Macleod. and the local nine.. The article is so extremely ridiculous in its statements and allegations that, it must be apparent to all who have read it that-it is merely a vap- id attempt to explain away a defeat. The article, so1 far as its statements arc concerned, .need? "no reply, be- cause it cannot :do.more than cause .amusement. We can't help suggest-' though, that the gentleman re-; pqrusibjc, .should change his- voca- ion arid join the "Dreamers" now a little stir in'.Manitoba. Vmon'g such fanatics his mental per- ersity might be appreciated. To ook at the matter seriously, howev.-! ur, for just a moment, we cannot but feel that it is a pity that there s in this portion of Sunny Southern Alberta an editor who will allow his columns to be filled with such rabid matter, whic'i is, to say the least of it, untruthful. Such senseless tactics may take in a country.where yellow journalism is permitted to flourish, here in where the nia- iority of the renders of the average country weekly are cool, level-head- ed business men, and plain, matter- of-fact farmers, this kind of from inferior mixtures, secures to the farmer the value attaching -to these standards. In response to an advanced pub lie opinion, appointments and pro- motions in the civil service will made henceforth only after a com- petitive examination in which those who excell will receive the reward of merit and while the operations of. the act are limited to the service at the seat of government, its provisions may later on be extended to trie set vice throughout the Dominion. The act revising and consolidating 'the laws and regulations affecting the disposition of the public lands will, it is meet with the hearty approval of the western provinces that are immediately interested. One of the principal features of the act is the permission to keep up a second hosxstead 'within a limited area and-also the right of a" home- steader to acquire by purchase the adjoining quarter section. It is in- tended ".'that 'the'''proceeds' of these sales, shall in the first, place be set apart as a fund for the construction of the railway to Hudson's Bay. The amendments .to the Bank Act, allowing under certain restrictions, an expansion in the circulation of notes of the( banks during" the per iod of the year wheat'crops arc be- ing moved', is considered facil- itate the quick transportation of the products of-the tha markets jf the world. Important, amendments have been made to the act respecting elections which it is believed will more effectively! protect.the rights of and guard against the exercise of undue influence in eiec torial contests." proposal to make a free grant of iahd as.a bounty, to the volunteers who rendered valuable service to the .Empire in the "South" African war, will .meet with -hearty approval. The- reduction of. the duty on drop letters: in cities and certain towns Laft Tea is sold only in Lethbridge by THE BENTLEY CO. LTD. rangement has .been effected and I feel sure that the; terms of the agree- ment will continue to h' faithfully carried 'out. An with regard to immigration from India having also been desirable, a ropre sentative of the government was sent England to discuss the question with the authorities >of the United Kingdom and also ..'with results thai promise to b2 entirely In both cases it has. atisfactory. -en the desire of my government, thai while caring properly for the interests of the Do- minion the welfare of the empire should also be regmjrded The gold and silver mariufacturinf.' act will stimulate the manufacture of a su- perior quality of these articles com- posed of the preciofcs, metals and at the same time will protect the public from fraudulent representations.
